History of Racism


Yesterday I watched this BBC documentary on racism. It included information on the Transatlantic Slave Trade, Imperialism, Colonialism, Scientific racism, Social Dawinism, Eugenics, genocides (as one of the speakers called it, “bureaucratization of killing”), racist experiments (ex. mass sterilization), fear of immigration, different ethnicities and lower classes, and economic, cultural and political disenfranchisement, and how all of this affected people all over the world.

There was not only one holocaust in the world and this documentary helps in revealing them. Warning: There are disturbing pictures in this film. It is really sickening what people have done to each other in the past and now.
